Hey guys, Doug here with DB Strength down at Alliance Training Center. Today I'm going to show you the deadlift, which is one of my favorite exercises, both for the everyday client and for the combat athlete as well. One reason I love the deadlift so much is it’s really a full body exercise, so it’s a compound lift. It’s one of those exercises where you get a lot of bang for your buck. I love it for the grip component – obviously MMA, grappling, those sorts of sports, grip is a huge component of the game. It’s a pulling movement, so if you're trying to control your opponent, pull them into your guard, keep them right against the cage, things like that, that pulling strength is paramount. The deadlift is one of the best exercises for that.
